Todd Beard Keynote

Think about your most meaningful moments in life and school... Did you have fun? Did you learn something? Were you scared? Did you laugh? Did you feel strong emotions? Did a mystery get solved? Why do you still remember these moments to this day? My classes are active participants in our passion-based edutainment environment. From game shows to plays, instructional gaming to play based learning, my students use critical thinking skills to understand the world around us, and it is a whole lot of fun! In this interactive keynote we will examine brain-based techniques for creating authentic engagement. We will create our own toolboxes from best-practices, pedagogy, and technology. Participants will be part of an introspective journey of discovery and sharing, that develops a culture of learning while focusing on our individual strengths as educators to increase student achievement.

 Andrew Fitzgerald Keynote

As we move past our first edtech barrier, educators are now faced with new challenges that parallel the same tasks we're asking of our students. Our new task of creating 21st century learning activities for students is possible with the right mindset and attitude. Learn about the current edtech barriers we now face today as educators, and what we can do to overcome them.

 Catlin Tucker Keynote

Education has been disrupted. Technology is radically changing the way we communicate, create, and learn. The rise in online tools, the increasing availability of mobile devices, and the limitless amounts of information at our fingertips are having a profound impact on education. Join teacher, international trainer, and bestselling author Catlin Tucker as she shares how she transformed her low-tech classroom by leveraging her students connectivity at home and the devices they bring into the classroom to create a blended learning model. She will share creative strategies and examples of student work to highlight how she is leveraging the power of technology to place students at the center of learning. (Note: Catlin Tucker's second keynote will be available at a later date).
